Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect refers to treatment and care that doesn’t meet the mental or physical health requirements of the resident involved, but there is no intention to do harm involved – on the part of the nursing home or staff. Nursing home neglect, however, can be exceptionally dangerous because nursing home residents are some of the most vulnerable among us and because it can be difficult to spot nursing home neglect until your loved one exhibits noticeable signs of that neglect.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse includes the reprehensible element of intentionally causing the nursing home resident harm. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, but some of the most common categories include:
- Physical abuse
- Psychological or emotional abuse
- Financial abuse
- Sexual abuse
If you are struck by a sense that your loved one has undergone a negative change for no reason that is apparent to you, it’s time to consider the ugly possibility of nursing home neglect or abuse.
